front yard, after a few minutes, she saw
the strange hoy mixed up with her
three or four children, and she called
out:
"Hoy, what are go doing there?"
"I'ccdin' these half-starved children,"
he promptly replied.
"Hut those aie my children," she in

ACIDUAI.ATED WaTEK FOR SlCK
An imai.s. A contributor writes
follows:
When an animal is laboring under any
protracted disease and is feverish and
thirsty, I recommend that an occasional
draught of Acidulated wnter be ofllioi
and if the animal will partake of it much
good may he expected from it. In
human practice we find that when the
patient is feverish, and labouring under
an alkaline diathesis, acidualated drinks
are indicated, and very frequently pre
scribed, and thus the fire of the fever is
lessened and the thirst quenched. A
very excellent and acidulated drink
may he made as follows; Take of
sulphuric acid one ounce; water two
gallons. Two such doses per day will
suffice for cattle or horses. This mix
ture also possesses tonic properties, and
is highly serviceable in disease of ty
phoid character, and in cases of debility;
especially when the patient sweats pro
fusely. It is useful also in diabetes,
bloody urine, passive hemorrhages from
whatever part they may arise. In ca
ses of diarrhea it has a very marked
effect ; yet in the latter case the quanti
ty of water should be lessened.
I advise our farmers who are in lo
cations where the services of a veter-1
inary surgeon cannot be obtained, to
keep a small supply of sulphuric acid
on hand, for it might be the means of
often saying the life of a valuable ani
mal. The acid must he kept in a hot
tie with a glass stopper, and if the farm
er has no graduating glass to measure
the quantity, let him pour aslnall quan
tity at a time into the water, and
when a slight acid taste is secured, that
is all that is wanted. A drachm or so,
more or less, will do no harm.

without flirtation or shyness, gave him

poetical mood, wish we were the man
